  • Remember in November

    Kentucky Retirement Systems stakeholders are shocked and appalled by the actions of the General Assembly regarding public pensions. Last week, in the space of about nine hours, the majority party produced a 291-page pension bill and voted it out of the House and Senate. Senate Bill 151 awaits Gov. Matt Bevin’s signature.

  • Dear citizen

    Dear citizen,

    “The advantage of being armed…the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation…in the several kingdoms of Europe…the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.” (James Madison, The Federalist, 46) (p.107, vol.71, firearms news)

    Beware of Federal Bill 5087.

    K.L. Jones

    Bradfordsville,

  • Déjà vu all over again

    I’m so proud and amazed by these children who are protesting and organizing marches to end the gun violence. For me, this is, “Déjà vu, all over again…” (Yogi Bara).

  • Reasonable gun control

    "Solutions to problems are simple, when viewed from their ludicrous extremes" ... when the Constitution was crafted the only long guns were single shot muzzle loaders ... it took an expert 30 seconds to reload ... and by the seventh round, the barrel would likely tighten and it wouldn't be possible to shoot another round. THAT is the weapon that our forefathers envisioned when drafting the Second amendment in 1791.

  • Stop school shootings with your vote

    You had a son or daughter who served a tour of duty in the military. He came home after their tour safe from any harm. Your school-aged child did not survive his school years. He was shot and killed in the sixth grade. This is what we’re seeing today.

    The only way these types of killings will be stopped is by gun laws. The manufacturing of military type guns needs to be outlawed. All of these types of guns in the hands of persons other than law enforcement need to, by law, be turned in.

  • Letters to the editor - Feb. 21, 2018

    End the violence
    Another day. Another deadly school shooting. This time in Florida. Seventeen dead.
    How many more kids and teachers have to die in our schools before elected officials do what's required to stop it? We have become a nation of violence and the NRA propaganda has infected our culture.
    We now have a gun violence crisis and an opioid crisis. When will we all come to our senses and demand that these politicians who champion NRA "gun rights" give back the millions of dollars they get from them?

  • Abolish the death penalty

    Currently, I’ve become aware of the increase in advocates for the abolition of the death penalty in Kentucky. What a sensible development that is. It makes so much more sense than the current state law that allows people to kill people as a punishment for killing people. The logic of that stance is impossible for me to understand. Where then does the punishment for killing stop?

  • Keep Marion County beautiful, stop littering

    Garbage, trash, waste… Whatever you want to call it. There’s a proper place to dispose of it and it’s not on our county roads!

    It completely amazes me the amount of litter found on the roads of Lebanon and Marion County. Whoever said it was right to discard your trash/garbage on the side of the road? Not only is it illegal to litter and/or dump it also goes against the core of our existence as human beings.

  • Montgomery making Marion County proud
  • Our neighbor Makers Mark

    Some of the black on our houses, storage buildings, driveways, patio, etc., is caused from aging of whiskey in the warehouses. Ninety-five percent of the black on our houses and buildings are caused by spiders, spider webs, wasps, and many other insects; trees, dirt in the atmosphere, rubber tire wear and fuel used in our automobiles are part of the blackness.

    Burning brush, trash, grass burn off also contribute to the blackness. The whiskey aging is the least contributing to the blackness.
